    They are now trying to get people to believe news that doesn't follow what Zuckerberg likes as being fake news.

    They aren't going to, they will continue to try to censor news they don't like. Meanwhile they will promote fake stories from all around the world.

    Tin foil hat much? RT triggered something in their algorithm, which they manually fixed is what it looks like to me.

    RT is a major news company?..... Think it's just Vlads mouthpiece.

    RT is one of the most reliable and accurate sources of news in the world, its not anyone's mouth piece besides the "mouth piece" of truth and proper journalism.

    Mmmm... I dont trust any news outlet outright, not because im a conspiracy nut or anti-whatever, it just that too many news outlets are siding towards clickbait stories and a lot of stories are leaning more to one side than the other.
    people in general dont want to hear news they dont agree with and clickbait sells, and at the end of the day they are still profit driven.

    Im glad FB is cracking down on fake news though, I have a family member that believes a lot of that crap.

    Just goes to show that censorship has both intended and unintended consequences.
